Handset makers take note. If you want to cook up quarterly profits, the recipe is easy: Stock up on Google's not so "secret sauce" (as iSuppli calls it) Android platform and serve hot. According to iSuppli, this is exactly what's been working, and out of the Top 10 smartphone brands in the second quarter, the majority... Read more...
The big news on Columbus Day here in America is Windows Phone 7. It's a mobile operating system from Microsoft that was originally launched months back at Mobile World Congress, and it has grown and evolved over the months leading up until today. At launch events in New York City and in the UK, Microsoft revealed the next major part of their... Read more...
Windows Phone 7 was already announced months back, but the operating system is finding a home on a bunch of new devices today. T-Mobile has the Venue Pro, and AT&T is grabbing a couple as well. The HTC Surround 7 is probably the most impressive, with a built-in kickstand like the HTC EVO 4G, a 1GHz Qualcomm processor and Windows Phone... Read more...
You have to hand it to HTC for not only recognizing a potentially good business opportunity when it arrives, but successfully capitalizing on it. We're of course talking about Google's Android platform, and HTC has been riding that green gravy train ever since it left the station. Now the world's No. 4 smartphone maker, HTC nearly doubled...

There are so many different Android phones, and that's been one of the reasons for Android's success. Different form factors, different carriers, even in the U.S. So how do you find out about all them? Google has an app, er, sorry, a web site for that. In fact, the Google Phone Gallery also shows what you do with a... Read more...
Windows Phone 7 is almost here. The holidays are rapidly approaching, and Microsoft has long since maintained that WP7 handsets would be on sale prior to 2011. As the time draws near, we are seeing more and more leaks and hints of what Windows Phone 7 will actually look like. Take this video for example. It popped up on YouTube over the weekend...

Steve Jobs and the rest of his Cupertino cohorts did two things when they released the iPad under  Apple's unofficial planned obsolescence model -- you know, the one where Apple leaves off obvious features like a USB port, HDMI connectivity, upgradeable storage, and everything else you'd find on even the most thinly spec'd netbook. First,... Read more...
Nokia World is going on in London right now, but that's not stopping rival HTC from holding their own event in the same city.

T-Mobile announced the successor to its G1 smartphone, the new T-Mobile G2 with Google. The G2 will support T-Mobile’s new HSPA+ network, which T-Mobile is touting as offering 4G speeds. Designed by HTC, the G2 combines a large, 3.7-inch screen with a hinge design that opens to reveal a QWERTY keyboard. The phone runs on Android 2.2... Read more...
Yep, it's finally here! Flash Player 10.1 has finally been made official for Google's Nexus One, enabling it to play back Flash content and display Flash websites in a way that the iPod touch, iPad and iPhone can only dream of doing. The N1 has had a beta version for a while now, one that we mentioned (and loved) in our Android 2.2 review.... Read more...
A video of an upcoming high-end smartphone from HTC has leaked. Details and pictures of the upcoming smartphone known as the HTC Desire HD have leaked, though nothing has been officially confirmed by the smartphone manufacturer.

This information includes details of Big Red's plans for the rest of this year, next year, and even some information about possible 2012 launches. So what can you expect to see in the months and year ahead? Look for Android tablets,... Read more...
Well, this is awkward. We all attended the virtual funeral for Google's Nexus One, and now it's back? How does one act at a resuscitation, anyway? For years now, a dressed up HTC G1 was known as Google's Android developer phone, but given that things have evolved since then, the company was due a revised dev handset. And what better phone...

America's "first 4G phone" is about to become America's second official Froyo phone. According to a release published by Sprint, the HTC EVO 4G will be granted official access to Android 2.2 as early as tomorrow, which makes it the first carrier-locked phone in America to get the update that Google has had ready for a month now. We noted back... Read more...
You'll recall that after Apple's iPhone 4 press conference, in which they showed that other phones exhibit the same signal attenuation issues as the iPhone 4 (except that instead of a finger touch, it took a hard grip), Apple posted videos of the other phones on its site. Those videos have disappeared, now, at least from the U.S. site. As... Read more...
It's the end of an era, but honestly, it's not an end that we're going to be tearing up about. T-Mobile's G1 has just left the building, which is somewhat sad to hardcore Android lovers, but it's a great sign of forward progress for everyone else. The HTC-built G1 is largely remembered as the world's first Android... Read more...
Last week, it was confirmed that HTC is one of the major smartphone manufacturers who will offer a Windows Phone 7 smartphone.

The leaked information also suggests HTC's Windows Phone 7 device... Read more...
Short supplies of AMOLED screens have been blamed for delays in shipping enough HTC Droid Incredible devices. That could be nothing but past experience, according to HTC, because the company is switching a number of devices to a "just as good" Super LCD display. That switchover was rumored back in June, but HTC saw fit to make it official... Read more...
Microsoft has divulged the names of at least five manufacturers who are planning to offer Windows Phone 7 devices. At the Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference on July 13, Microsoft's mobile senior vice president Andy Lees told attendees that applications in Windows Phone 7 devices will work with "100% consistency" across hardware coming...

They're gone. Google has sold out its last batch of Nexus Ones, only a few days after Google reported that they had received their last shipment from HTC, for online sale. It was a grand experiment, selling the HTC Nexus One online, but it was doomed to failure: originally, while the device was (nicely) unlocked, it could only be bought... Read more...
Is this the showdown of the year? In the smartphone world, we would argue that it is. If you're looking for arguably the world's best 3G smartphones right now, you're likely considering two specific choices: Apple's iPhone 4 on AT&T, or HTC's DROID Incredible on Verizon Wireless. Both phones provide an excellent user experience, and both... Read more...
